Hi-Beam Stainless Steel Bass Strings are round wound and constructed upon a round core which is unique in the industry. Hi-Beams require much more time, care, and extra steps to make than other bass strings. The extra effort DR expends making Hi-Beams results in a bass string that is highly flexible, musically bright without harshness, and they're renowned for unusually long life, consistency, and string-to-string balance. They don't eat your frets. Choose them for brightness and ease of playing. They fit virtually all bass scale lengths up to 37-3/4".

  • The Only Strings I Use

    As reviewed by Dogstarr1 on 9/25/2006

    I had heard good things about DR Strings and haven't looked back since I tried my first set about a year ago. They really don't eat your frets and seem to last considerably longer than other strings I've used, I don't use the long-life coated strings either. The strings are very tightly wound and have a silkier, smoother feel than most roundwound bass strings (probably why your frets last). They aren't the cheapest strings, but considering how well they last, I think they are actually a bargain.

  • The best to date

    As reviewed by SAM on 6/8/2007

    These are by far the best bass strings I have used to date. They are smooth to the touch comfortable to play and create a masterful tone on any bass. I had heard some good things about Dean Markley Blue Steel strings and decided to give them a shot since they were cheaper. Well you get what you pay for. They did not even compare, they are much rougher strings physically and create a harsher lesss musical tone than the DR's. I also experimented with the light guage dr's still very good strings but the tone does suffer a little on the low end. I think perhapse next time I will try med-lts. But so far these are it.

  • Nice bright tone

    As reviewed by BassPlayer on 10/3/2006

    First I noticed when open package - this strings are heavy. If you didn't have steel strings before you found them rough on touch with metalic sound. They produce nice bright tone and lasts at least two times longer than D'Addario (two months instead of one). I'm still on my way to find MY strings, but DR Hi-Beams is already in my list.
